The flowers that Melanie did for my wedding were amazing. She managed to stay in my budget and made the bouquets better than I had dreamt of. Melanie even had someone meet me last minute to pick up the shotgun shells for the groomsmen's boutonnieres. She was easy to talk to and understood exactly what I was going for. I loved everything she had done for other weddings and did not disappoint with mine. My bridesmaids have been in a ton of weddings and said they were so impressed and loved my flowers. Thanks Melanie!!

Melanie was incredible to work with. Her beautiful vision for our laid back, lakeside wedding was exactly what I was looking for! Her use of greenery paired with beautiful floral arrangements along with a variety of succulents made for a very elegant, bohemian feel. Melanie was very professional and easy to work with. I gave her a basic vibe that I was looking for and her creative juices flowed. I was stunned when I finally had the chance at our wedding to step back and take in the wonderful ceremony decor and incredibly creative centerpieces. Melanie knew exactly what I wanted and she delivered! I will continue to sing her praises to anyone who is looking for the perfect florist.

Last Petal provided the bouquets and corsages for my wedding. I contacted them pretty last minute after my previous plans for florals had fallen through, and they were so flexible and willing to help me out on short notice. I sent a few pictures of the styles I liked to Melanie - all our communication was solely via email - and I really cannot say enough how incredibly pleased I was with the bouquets. Everything was absolutely gorgeous, and exactly what I had pictured in my mind. The pricing was very reasonable compared to some other quotes I had received. Thank you SO MUCH Melanie!

Last Petal provided the flowers for my wedding and they did a great job. Melanie was really easy to work with and really understood what I wanted as far as color scheme and the feel of the wedding. She was a little hard to get a hold of sometimes, but always came through in the end. She was very professional, and yet still easy going and the flowers looked great. Thanks Melanie!

Melanie was very easy to work with and worked with my budget. The flower arrangements she created were beautiful. She allowed me to make several changes and always replied to my emails within a day or two. My bouquet didn't turn out quite how I wanted it. However, it was still gorgeous.

I can't say enough good things about Melanie at Last Petal! I gave her a handful of Pinterest pictures and my color scheme (navy and green...admittedly difficult for floral) and asked her to run with it. What she presented was truly INCREDIBLE. I couldn't take my eyes away from the bouquets and boutonnieres when they were delivered. They looked straight out of the pages of a bridal magazine! The centerpieces were stunning and still looked fresh for several days after we brought them home. The best part of all of it? I got more than I expected at a fraction of the price I would have paid with any other florist! Initially when I e-mailed Melanie I explained to her my budget constraints and she said it would be no problem; she remained budget conscious throughout the design process (far different from another florist I had met, who came in with a proposal that was 3.5x my budget!!). If you are looking for a florist with a true vision for floral design at a great price, you've found it at Last Petal!

I drove from Houston to Austin to meet with Melanie. When I told her our flower budget she said "that's not a very big budget to spend on flowers."
She snubbed me and my daughter with that statement. We chose another Austin florist who was AMAZING and never questioned our budget. Ever.
Make sure you have plenty of money if you use this vendor. I'm sure her flowers are beautiful.

I would highly recommend Melanie with Last Petal! She was fabulous to work with from start to finish. At our initial meeting we went through my pinterest board to get a good idea of the flowers that I was interested in. From there she took my ideas and ran with it! She created a fabulous design and flower selection given the 25 pictures I had shown her. She worked with me through all the details... wanting flowers in the back window of our car, reducing table counts, adding wreaths, etc. We set a budget and she worked within our budget while still giving us the flowers we wanted. She was very honest about what was too much and never tried to upsell. Multiple times during the reception I got compliments about how great the flowers looked. Melanie was truly amazing to work with in all ways and I hope she will do my little sisters wedding some day!
